Taipei-National Taiwan University (NTU) has the most enrolled international students among all universities in Taiwan for the 2019 academic year, according to a report released Friday by the Ministry of Education (MOE).
NTU topped the enrollment list of national universities with 2,970 international students, followed by National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) with 1,899, National Chengchi University (1,581), National Taiwan Normal University (1,476) and National Tsing Hua University (1,440).
In terms of private higher education institutions in Taiwan, Ming Chuan University (MCU) came first with 1,957 international students, closely followed by Tamkang University (1,868), I-Shou University (1,480), Feng Chia University (1,425), and Chinese Culture University (1,326).
For local technical colleges, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology has the most international students with 1,515, followed by Minghsin University of Science and Technology (1,247) and National Taipei University of Technology (1,045).
The MOE defines international students as including foreign nationals, those from Hong Kong, Macau, China, and overseas compatriot students.
According to the "Regulations Regarding Study and Counseling Assistance for Overseas Compatriot Students in Taiwan," the term "overseas compatriot student" refers to a student of Chinese or Taiwanese descent who has come to Taiwan to study, who was born and lived overseas until the present time, or who has been living overseas for six or more consecutive years in the immediate past and obtained permanent or long-term residency status overseas.
Chu Chun-chang (???), director-general of the Ministry of Education's Department of Higher Education, said he expects the number of international students in Taiwan to rise in the foreseeable future, as the government continues to promote its New Southbound Policy and the increasing internationalization of the tertiary education sector.
According to the MOE, the census was part of an annual report that records 44 different aspects relating to university affairs in Taiwan for the 2019 academic year.
